Default More AMERICAN QUEEN information

Got this from a river friend:
Great American Steamboat Company Unveils American Queen Plans | Travel Agent Central

I have to say this company is covering all the bases. A couple of things here jumped out as very positive from my old days DQ experience: they are targeting Americans who live near the rivers; they are making it easier to get to/from the boat, especially by avoiding air travel - they have arranged one-way car rentals with Hertz, and they plan to bus passengers back to the embarkation city on their own motorcoaches, thus enabling people to drive to the boat. What a convenience this would be! I once rented a car in St. Paul to drive home. One ways were so expensive, but I had too much stuff to load onto a plane. Having a special one way rate would be great for those in decent driving distances to the embarkation point. I would often book the back to back St.L/St.P/St.L trips so I could keep my car in St. Louis, thus saving hundreds of dollars in returning home fare. Great ideas in my opinion. Add the news Keith posted elsewhere about Kitty Ruxton joining the company, and it just looks better and better.
Now if only they'd charge the regular per person double occupancy rate for one person in a single room, or reinstitute the share basis on cheaper rates...
